Dear Friends,
Welcome to These past 20 years on the web have been amazing and I have known some of the best of times!  I carry these wonderful memories close to my heart. The intriguing people I have met, venues such as the AMMY's (Asian American Movie & Music awards) and SIRIUS XM radio remain some of my favorites. Also, there is no greater thrill, than to see one of your own books in print on the shelf at a Barnes and Noble bookstore. I have been blessed.

However, I also know the pain of fighting web piracy, breaches of my copyrights & getting the short end of my publishers "creative financing" on royalty checks; but, all these were trivial compared to the domestic violence I endured for almost 4 years. I lost almost everything and escaped from a controlling, violent husband in 2012. I spent time in a battered women's safehouse. At one point I felt so hopeless and beat down that I really wasn't sure I wanted to go on... a very dark time for me. :(

Instead, I made the choice and found the strength to get back up on life's horse.  I needed to rebuild the train wreck that was my life and my career. I found new hope, in a new state and started on the road to healing. To my surprise (while I was sleeping, so to speak) when I got back on the web, I noticed that everyone and their uncle had become a "Chinese Astrologer". One woman (a self-proclaimed psychic) has been using my material as her own for years! ...really? 

However, throughout the years and all of the changes, this website has always been a reflection of my heart. These days I.spend my time writing and teaching. My health has taken a dive from the auto-immune disease I suffer from (Lupus) and frankly, I never completely recovered physically or emotionally from the domestic violence. Your energy and presence here is essential and means the world to me! Visit often and if there is anything I can do to make this website a better place, please let me know.

May I simply just say what a comfort to find someone who truly understands what they are talking about on the net. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular because you surely possess the gift.

Hello Shelley,

I have the same probs as you, and a marriage to a difficulterson who is wrecking all the family with his manias and canI say it ?is possessed. it never is as you know easy to jus break up and go, too much complication and that stress does make any (in my opinion) illness 100 x worse. your work has been a great inspiration, so thank you very much.
